Can you believe it's December already????? Where has this year gone? A lot has happened this year and I must say I feel very blessed and very happy with those changes.
When I decided to write a series, the concept of change and evolution of my characters was a starting place for me. In nature, butterflies symbolize change of a dramatic degree. People (mostly women) tattoo butterflies on their bodies to memorialize a life changing event or to commemorate a moment in time the wish to never forget. Even Ebony gets a butterfly tattoo...well, you have to read the story to find out where and why, though!
A Heart Not Easily Broken starts in May, just as Ebony is going on summer break before the final year of college. She's been working hard for the past seven years and is excited to embark on her dream of becoming a licensed veterinarian. She meets and falls in love with Brian, a man who is different, being that he is white, yet shares the same type of hard work, dedication, and passion for what he wants to achieve in life. During the seven months the book follows their relationship, each character is tested, the strength of their relationship, love, and the ability to grow and evolve into better, more open-minded people ensues. By the end of the book, it is December. With hearts full of love and gratefulness, they have experienced their life-changing butterfly moment.
